Clarity On Subaru Forester Used To Kidnap Ethiopian Businessman


Footage that surfaced on the incident on Sunday, November 21 which went viral on social media showed the businessman, Samson Teklemichael, being picked up by security officers from his vehicle in Nairobi’s Kilimani Estate.

New details surfaced on Wednesday, November 24 regarding a Subaru Forester which was used to allegedly kidnap an Ethiopian businessman in broad Nairobi daylight by people believed to be security officers.

Footage that surfaced on the incident on Sunday, November 21 which went viral on social media showed the businessman, Samson Teklemichael, being picked up by security officers from his vehicle in Nairobi’s Kilimani Estate.

Teklemichael was bundled into the waiting Subaru which had blocked his Bentley Bentayga in the middle of the road. The four men had thrust him into the vehicle after they approached his Bentley and dragged him out.

The white Subaru’s plates read KCD 445K. However, Viral Tea has established that the number plate is fake.

Information via the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) portal where vehicles owners and plates are stored revealed that the plate belongs to a lorry and not the Subaru.

The lorry is white in colour and was manufactured in 2014 before it was registered on June 3, 2015. It has only had two owners being a commercial bank and an individual.

The discovery makes the ordeal more complex as it is still not clear who kidnapped the businessman. Additionally, netizens had pointed fingers at security agencies for being behind the abduction as they notably drive around the city in the Subaru vehicles, some with Government of Kenya (GK) number plates, but the agencies did not issue a statement by the time of publication.

Teklemichael, who is reported to have last been seen on Friday, November 19, could be heard pleading with witnesses to record his abduction. He is said to have made a call to his wife, Milen Mezgebo, notifying them of the unfortunate events, minutes after he was captured.

“He called me and told me that he’s been abducted by someone he does not know. After that, the phone got disconnected and he’s been offline since,” Mezgebo told Citizen TV.

The abductors left his Bentley parked in the middle of a major road in Kileleshwa before his wife was alerted by a friend to go and pick up the vehicle. She took the car and reported the matter at the Kilimani Police Station.

“Police said they are investigating and they are still not getting anything. If they are not getting anything, that means we are not safe,” she lamented.

Mezgebo also revealed that she has also reported the matter to the Ethiopian Embassy in Kenya. She added that her husband is a reputable businessman who exports gas cylinders to Ethiopia and had not expressed fears over his life.

Kilimani police boss Andrew Muturi confirmed that the matter is being investigated by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detectives at the station.

The incident adds to the growing list of businessmen kidnapped in the recent past across Nairobi under unclear circumstances as investigations into the cases remain unresolved.
